So you’ve been going hard all year. Weather it be school, work or both, you’ve been busting your ass non stop. Wouldn’t you agree that it’s time for a well deserved break? Yes I’m talking about a vacation! Take your pick. You could go hiking and camping in the mountains, maybe an self-indulgent drug induced trip across Europe, or maybe go with the safe cliche summer trip to the beach! Well wherever you go, we’re here to make sure you look good doing it.
Today let’s focus on the beach getaway. In addition to your favorite shades and your sunscreen here are some things to remember while packing.
The first thing to remember when going to the beach is to keep it simple. Stick with breezy but fitted shirts like the tank here. For some advice on choosing swim shorts see the recent Building a Wardrobe post.
When it comes to footwear, flip flops are the go-to style for the beach. It won’t hurt to bring them along but there’s always room for improvement. Try some light canvas espadrilles like the ones above to spruce up your beach style.
Now there will definitely be opportunities to get a little formal on your trip. So pack a few light button downs, loafers, and chinos just in case you need to swank things up a bit.
Oh and do us all a favor and leave the Jason Mraz fedora at home. Thanks.
So now you have all this great beach attire but you still need a place to pack it. The weekender bag is your best bet. It’s compact, easy to handle, and it might pass for a carry on bag. Not to mention it also doubles as a great accessory to any outfit.
